Tone and Mood of a Reading Passage

Tone is an author's attitude about a topic in a literary text or informational text.  Not only is it important for a reader to notice subtle clues in order to determine an author's tone, it is also important to have a wide vocabulary of tone words to draw from when describing a reading passage.

Describing the tone of a text is an area where my students have shown a great amount of growth.  It is something that students must practice in order to develop skill.
